“Come on, say it again. I‘m a perfect devil. Tell me how bad I am. It makes me feel so good!” Oh Lestat!!! He kills me This book was so much slower than the first 2 (maybe 200-300 pages of back story, really?) but I still enjoyed it

KathyWheeler Yeah — that was a lot of backstory, but I still liked it. The only one I absolutely hated was Memnoch the Devil. 10mo

RachLovesTV Yessss! I wrote this quote down when I was reading this. And also texted it to my BFFs. 2y
jillrhudy In the eighties it was thought maybe pretty and polite feminists could advance the agenda, because overbearing men created an “ugly feminist” stereotype. Now we just need some feminists. That‘s what happens when you let the patriarchy shape the movement. Roxane and Lindy are what we need and never stopped needing. 2y

Silence gives consent. Thank you Roxane for saying that rape jokes are not funny ever.

TrishB Never 2y
RachLovesTV So much yes. 2y
kathedron Strictly speaking, it translates " the one who is silent is seen to consent" which puts a different complexion on the matter and is, I feel, closer to the truth. I have a problem with silence = consent: there are any number of reasons for/interpretations of silence, but they get swept under the carpet. Then comes the silence-shaming... (Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your post!) 2y
Teafiend I totally agree. In the context of this chapter, which is talking about a comedian making rape jokes, there was only one person in the crowd who spoke up. So in that sense, the crowds silence was consenting to other jokes and other terrible things. Thank you so much for your input. I should have been more specific. 2y

Agnes Grey | Anne Bront, Acton Bell

My first read by Anne Bronte. It is a short read that is definitely slow in parts. I love imagining what it was like during that time

Bailedbailed

Only got a few pages in. The writing didn‘t flow for me, sort of threw me off. And there were several words I didn‘t recognize (on page 2!?!?) so I can‘t deal with that! It was like the author was trying to use every word in her dictionary! So maybe it wasn‘t the right time for me to read it or just not the right book for me. Oh well. Onto Margaret Atwood!

I also picked it for it‘s cover. So a surprise win for me. Im glad I didn‘t read the negative feedback before reading. Just so cute

Altered Carbon | Richard Morgan

This was my choice for cyberpunk and it was excellent. Would never have chosen this if it wasn‘t for the pop sugar challenge and I couldn‘t be more pleased. I can now watch the series without any guilt. A bit violent but very interesting

Bknrdadventures This is up next for me. Thanks for the review. I‘m looking forward to reading it!😀 2y

This is a delightfully quick read. Enough science to be interesting but not too much to feel dumb. I haven‘t read The Martian but it is definitely at the top of my tbr. His writing sort of reminds me of Janet evanovich in the best possible way. Really funny

Andrew65 The Martian is a great book, not read Artemis yet but do see it has very mixed reviews. 2y
Teafiend This was a pick for a book club and I hadn‘t read any reviews before reading. Maybe I wouldn‘t have enjoyed it as much if I did! 2y
